Who Preloads Ubuntu on PCs?
Much of the Linux community is waiting to for Dell to introduce PCs with Ubuntu pre-loaded in North America. But if you can’t wait for Dell to deliver the goods, there are alternatives.
Check out PricePC.com, System76.com and ZAreason.com for a look at small PC suppliers that are loyal to the open source community. In some ways, these companies remind me of the mom-and-pop hardware stores that ultimately wind up competing with The Home Depots of the world (in this case, Dell).
